Cute Cow Card (Kitty Bee Designs Spotlight)

Hi everyone! :o)

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Kitty Bee Designs and I made this Cute Cow Card. :o)

For my card I used a super fun 'Kal-Bi Cow (Bee)' digital stamp digital image. So cute and fun!! :o) And there are more cute cow images in the store. :o)

I went with similar design as on my own card I made in January this year for KBD, Coffee Panda Card. :o)

I printed the cow on a watercolor paper and left the ink set through the night. Next day I colored the cow in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the cow, traced edges with black marker and softened parts with a stylus ball on a soft working mat.

The watercolor paper I use is too thin, so I printed one more sow on a white cardstock paper, colored the cow with black marker, fussy cut her leaving white border around her and glued colored cow over the black one (paper piecing). Thicker. :o)

Then I stamped a sentiment from Paper Smooches 'Chubby Chums' stamp set on a side folded white card base and drew frame with a black fine liner. I glued some 3-D foam on the back of the cow, glued her on the card and my card was finished. :o)
